Quebec ceramist Makiko Nakamura Hicher works her cups to give them this irregular and ageing effect.
Teapot from Makiko | AbysseQuebec Ceramist Collection
This teapot is a valuable addition to the Abysse line, a favourite among Quebec ceramist Makiko's collections. Bright and attractive, the vibrant turquoise of this line is skillfully balanced by the artist's signature irregular, weathered finish.
Makiko passes multiple layers of glaze with a sponge on each to acquire beautiful shades of colour. Then, the glaze material is removed with a needle to achieve the result desired by the artist.
These stages of creation give both flair and texture to her pieces, so light and delicate in the hand.
Each piece is uniquely crafted, with colours and capacity which vary from one to another. Beautiful artisanal work.
Opening diameter: 6.75 cm
Height: 11.5 cm

As a challenge, the Quebec artist wanted to use vivid orange for this collection, a colour with a bold character which is rarely used in ceramics. Juxtaposed with this modern graphic, a rebellious cup is born with a singular design that captures the imagination.
